When you have been constantly a superstar for almost five decades in a country of more than 1.3 billion people, then people take notice of your every little action. Such is the case with the man who first gained popularity in the early 1970s for films such as Zanjeer, Deewaar and Sholay. Yes, we’re talking about none other than Amitabh Bachchan. Whatever he does, people notice.
Also, it’s understandable that being praised by such a big icon is quite an achievement. Recently senior Bachchan shared an admiring video of a genius kid who knows how to fly and this post has been getting attention in the news.
76-year-old Bachchan is an active Instagrammer who boasts an enviable following of more than 11 million on this platform. Recently a quite curious video has caught his attention. Spewing swift flight logic and flying factoids in the clip is a little guy aged only 6. Yes, six-year-old!
Bachchan who is also a film producer, television host of the Indian version of “Who wants to be a millionaire?”, is all praise for the genius kid who makes perfect sense as he converses with a pilot. His knowledge of hydraulics, auxiliary power units (APU), and airplane landing gear is simply amazing.
Bachchan, who is often dubbed as India’s “angry young man” for his on-screen roles in Bollywood showed his gentle side via this Instagram post.
Here is the post he shared on his Instagram profile, he captioned it as :
“No no no no .. this guy is not real !!” wrote Big-B.
It should be noted that the original video is a couple of years old and the kid in the video is Adam Mohammad Amer. The video went viral on social media and the response the six-year-old got was quite insane.
Adam is now barely eight, but he is undoubtedly one-of-a-kind. His knowledge of planes is unbelievably good.
Though the then, six-year-old Adam, had no actual flying experience, all that was about to change. His prowess at understanding the complex operations of airplanes prompted UAE’s Etihad Airways to make him a very special offer.
The Etihad Airways invited Adam to the cockpit to play pilot for a day! How’s that for an achievement?
The esteemed airplane company also made the video of Adam’s experience and uploaded on their YouTube channel and unsurprisingly this video also got viral and has more than 6.5 million views.
Here is the video featuring the Capt. Adam as he flies the world’s largest passenger plane, the Airbus A380. This kid is definitely going places.
